Mixed Martial Arts--- This will go down as one of the most important days in the history of MMA in the United States. Tonight at 9:00 PM Eastern Time on Spike TV will be the first time ever that live MMA fights take place on cable television (as opposed to pay-per-view), with an audience of millions.

The ratings success of "The Ultimate Fighter" has been far greater than expected, but that was still a reality series with pre-taped fights. Now we're talking about live fights on free television, just like any other sport. For the most in-depth coverage of "The Ultimate Fighter" that you'll find anywhere, check out my articles in the Weekly Columns section of MMAWeekly.com
